Gibson Explorer E2 Electric Guitar

Gibson Explorer E2 Electric Guitar

Featured Listing


Only produced for four years, the Gibson Explorer II, also called the E2, was intended to serve as an update to the original Gibson Explorer. A few key differences that set the E2 apart included a five-piece maple or maple/walnut body that was contoured and sported beveled edges, as well as a few cosmetic appointments for differentiation. Though the Gibson Explorer II was discontinued in 1983, it was revived in spirit through the Thunderhorse, which was based heavily off of the E2.
